't you have the guts to tell the truth, jim, is a common reframe? so let me deal head on with these jeremiahs. am i willing to tell the truth? yes. and it puts my credibility on the line every time i do. 14 years ago i was bullish on the nas dadaq and i had a huge return from my hedge fund. i was proud. i came into 2000 owning some of the hottest flyers. i called them red hots back then. i stayed peddle to the metal including a speech i gave near the end of february of that year recommending a ton of the most frothy stocks out there but in march 20000 things happened so quickly, i know it doesn't sound like a lot of time but people were going like this, march of 2000 we seen reversals and insiders selling. during those days, the only place to catch me opining was on this real money.com we mentioned with doug cass, part of the street.com and in the middle of that month i did something widely reviled. i sold every stock that fell high. every one of them. taking the money, going into bonds. never gone into bonds in my life. i bought dividend yielders, companies cheap rela
of their eyes. justin in new jersey. justin. >> hey, jim, how are you today? >> real good. justin, how about you? >> caller: pretty good. i try to add a solid -- how do you feel about intel on the recent pullback? >> we gave up on intel for action owners plus.com. some say we gave up too soon. i felt at 3.6% yield, that wasn't enough. if i get 4.5%, 5% it is, but frankly, we have no earnings from them at intel, and you can only own so many stocks that are a bet that one day they'll get it together. cisco hasn't done that for me. intel hasn't done that for me, and ibm hasn't done that for me. i'm not involved in this situation. when i say for me, i mean for my charitable trust. intel, not there. can i go to matt in california, please? matt. >> caller: boo-yah, jim. how are you doing? is. >> good. how are you? >> caller: good, given the pipeline in or near phase three, including the once weekly diabetes just recently or soon to be filed and that the price target has -- was raised on friday, where do you see the symptom going in the near future? >> i like it very much. i was going to do a segment o
to russia's black sea fleet. jim maceda is in moscow. jim, there have been a lot of stories circulating around about whether or not russia was involved. >> that's right. russia does deny it, as you say. but it didn't have to be their military. because it was dozens of russian-speaking gunmen who stormed those two airports today. the main airport in crimea's capital as well as a smaller military airport. now, it looks like a repeat of yesterday's incident, when those armed commandos seized crimea's government buildings. again, they were not russian, per se. they were ethnic russians living crimea in ukraine. at the commercial airport today, eyewitnesss said the gunmen were looking for ukrainian guards, but where they couldn't find any, they simply left. however, a few vigilantes were left behind patrolling the airport perimeter, which they're doing at this hour, but not disrupting flights. meanwhile, at the balbec military airport, it's really a standoff and that's continuing with russian-speaking gunmen outside the terminal, ukrainian military inside. the government in kiev has called t
forward. he pledged $1 billion in u.s. assistance to the struggling ukraine. jim joining us now in moscow. good morning to you. a lot going on to talk about. perhaps more aide from the eu and perry going to paris. >> reporter: that's right. kerry is in paris to discuss with russian counter parts. richard, i think you could say there's been a change in the past 24 hours as far as potential progress. that clearly comes from putin's comments tuesday that he saw no need for the use of force in ukraine and had no desire to annex the peninsula. that allowed the perceptible change from the military confrontation we've been reporting on to take a step back from the brink. today in crimea things repain tense on the ground. there's reports of russians seizing two ukraine missile posts. ukraine is spinning not towards war but diplomatic solution. secretary of state john kerry meeting with the russian counter part in paris is the first face to face meeting since the crisis escalated. perhaps more significantly ukrainians and russians on a governmental level are talking for the first time today. the r
for us here at cnn, jim sciutto. jim, what are your sources telling you tonight? i think we've got to emphasize, the white house hasn't said much about this and nobody expected the president of the united states to come out and make a statement about the ukraine. >> well, the white house hasn't said much but they were certainly worried about it and i've been hearing from a number of different parts of the government as their anxiety grew over the last 24 and 48 hours that something like this would happen. we've all seen the public statements from u.s. officials, from secretary kerry, secretary hagel warning russia not to do exactly what appears to have happened now in the ukraine and that is, send russian troops in. u.s. officials believe these are russia troops. over time, they are getting a better handle and the extent of the troops. this is a scenario that some had warned me about. the idea of tran it would be something more sought tell, special ops and black ops to get more cover and you see the russians getting legal cover here. the ambassador to the u.n. saying that the movem
can deliver, beginning with our chief national security correspondent jim sciutto. jim? >> clearly the administration is getting ready to act. no decision made yet on whether to impose those sanctions or, indeed, which sanctions to impose but they want to have the options ready. and today we heard the president warn that his goal is to isolate russia and make its actions in ukraine very costly. with russian troops now swarming, sovereigning ukrainian territory, preparing likely sanctions against russia. president obama vowing today to make russia's military intervention a costly proposition. >> what we're indicating to the russians is that if, in fact, they continue on the projectory that they are on, we are going to have a negative impact on russia's economy and its status in the world. >> reporter: the possible sanctions include freezing the overseas assets of russian individuals and companies, banning travel for russian leaders and businessmen and at the more extreme end, blocking some russian banks from the international financial system, an enormously costly situation for russ
. let's bring in with our national security correspondent jim sciutto. jim? >> wolf, officials are attempting to de-escalate the crisis and avoiding any moves that may further inflame the situation. does russia expand its military intervention or does it pull back? on the ground in ukraine, there's a volatile mix of armed forces and emotions, which we saw flair up today. today in crimea, russian and ukrainian forces in a dramatic and dangerous standoff. weapons drawn and here a threat to open fire. >> i said stop! i'm serious. i'll shoot at your legs. >> reporter: and as secretary of state john kerry arrived in the ukrainian capital of kiev, a war of words. russian president vladimir putin and secretary kerry trading die metric clee opposed views of the crisis. back and forth. >> translator: the acting president, of course, is not legitimate. >> the elected representatives of the people of ukraine, they overwhelmingly approve the new government. >> reporter: and back and forth. >> translator: citizens of ukraine, both russian and ukrainian, what worries them? they are worried a

to jim acosta at the white house. what is the latest in terms of diplomatic efforts on the u.s. front? >> president obama met with his national security advisers earlier this evening, they're not really looking at military options, at least according to what the white house is saying. they're focused on what can be done economically and diplomatically, you heard this talk over the weekend that u.s. and allies won't go to the g-8 summit this summer in russia. the u.s. is cancelling all military engagements that it has with the russians, that's a new step that took place this evening. you mentioned that secretary of state john kerry is heading over to kiev to talk about financial assistance that he is brings promises of from the united states and hopefully according to this white house from european allies, but the president believes that the world is on his side, not vladimir putin's side, the question is whether vladimir putin is listening. >> and in terms of options that the united states has. i mean, there are not a huge number of options. >> there aren't a whole lot of options, the
with our chief national security correspondent jim sciutto here tw latest. jim? >> i think you could say today we saul the full yin and yang of the u.s. policy response to the crisis in crimea. on the other side, secretary of defense chuck hagel demonstrating the u.s. commitment to its nato allies with the deployment of some aircraft and the cancellation-of nato contacts with russia. on the diplomatic side, we saw the opening of a diplomatic path to solving the crisis, the so-called off ramp u.s. officials have mentioned before, still undefined, kerry said, but a start. >> reporter: u.s. and russian diplomats face to face for the first time since the start of the crisis in crimea. secretary of state john kerry said they are now negotiating a diplomatic path to ending it. >> we are committed to working with russia. together with our friends and allies in an effort to provide a way for this entire situation to find the road to deescalation. >> reporter: russian and ukrainian officials, however, did not meet. >> why didn't you meet lavrov today? >> reporter: but as the diplomats talk or don
in the 1950s and '60s. it's jim crow back from the dead. i wrote a piece for this in u.s. news and world report. that's my biggest problem. they're cloaking racism and bigotry per se in the name of god. i'm a christian. i believe in god. if i'm in the public domain, if someone comes to me and says, hey, here's the deal, i'm straight and i don't like gay people, my response is great. how much are you willing to pay because i have something to offer you? if you're going to be in the business of interstate commerce, the constitution and the supreme court are clear, you cannot have separate but equal grounding. they struck that down. after the brown decision and after congress passed the civil rights acts, you can't just say i don't like you, therefore, i'm going to in the public arena not serve you or accommodate you or feed you if you have money for that proxy. it's against the law. >> i want to go back to pete on that question because the reaction to the discrimination that was taking place across the jim crow south was federal. there was a federal civil rights act of 1964. we'll celebrat
, jim, thank you for the accolades. i just get the blame or the credit being in charge of the department. we did a complete retooling of the department. we tipped the balance to relying on beat officers which was a big change of pace. the most important thing that we did was created a comprehensive gang violence reduction strategy. we had one of the worst gang violence problem. we didn't have a comprehensive strategy. we developed that and it revolves around the strategy. so when one issue happens it doesn't kickoff a whole series of events. it focuses on the people, places and things that are causing gang violence in the city. the people being the gang members and a lot of attention has been drawn to our custom notification program which revolves around a formula created by vindividual where we canfied fi an individual who is likely to be involved as an offender. that strategy is probably one of the most comprehensive in the country. >> it is. i want to bring you in evelyn, as well. it is also about prevention programs. can you explain to our viewers how that works and how that keeps yo
here. on the other hand, i'm excited that obama may be in way over his head here. jim? >> this is the ultimate result of a feckless foreign policy where nobody believes in america's strength anymore. >> there's no question there's a perception of american indecisiveness and weakness. >> we look like an impotent vacillating country. >> every time i president goes on national television and threatens putin or anyone like putin, everybody's eyes roll, including mine. we have a weak and indecisive president that invites aggression. >> that old lady is right. ( laughter ) obama-- obama needs to immediately do something manly. maybe a one-armed push-up or carve a canoe or invade a foreign country. how about iraq? third time's a charm! ( applause ) because right now the president of the united states is getting outplayed. look at what he wore saturday during a tense 90-minute phone call with vladimir putin. no tie. jeans with a jeans shirt. what is this casual doomsday? meanwhile on the other end you know putin shirtless stroking a tiger looking into his infinity mirror.

[cheers and applause] my name is jon stewart. my guest tonight jim demint a former senator from south carolina who left the senate to join a think thank because -- think tank because even just thinking around thinking in a tank -- [laughter] -- is more satisfied than being a united states senator. that's how bad it's gotten in the senate. not -- i will say this though, not that the senate is doing nothing. they did recently, i believe, pass the farm bill. >> the new farm bill president obama signed into law yesterday cuts $8.6 billion from food stamps during the next decades. >> >> jon: good. i think it's wasteel. who collects food stamps. the elvis' fat and skinny. you have your develop streeta zinni liberty bell. there no matter how valuable they may be they are just going to be bad -- oh, really food stamps are a form of assistance that allows those who are hungry to be less so. why would you cut that? lobbying from big stam stomach pang. >> using food stamps to buy ipads or cigarettes. >> you hear stories about people on food stamps going to vegas drawing money at casinos. >> jon:

with pretty credible knowledge that jim harbaugh is trying to run up the key players the wrong way. i cannot emphasize this enough the greatest water cooler conversation going on. what about hardball? my only gripe is i and offer her raising hell but when you have to years left only raise tell when you have 1 years left. jim is not starving. i think this is just my thinking a lot of fun to embarrassment for the organization. it is not all jim spot for the team's fault. teaming it is not all jim's fault. >> catherine: 6 months, isn't that enough time. >> gary: i think one year is good enough. >> gary: after reportedly having issues with those in the 49ers front office most notably general manager trent baalke there are rumblings that jim harbaugh is also wearing thin with some 49ers players in a column by the san francisco chronicle's ann killion today she wrote "one source with inside knowledge of the team says that harbaugh's act has worn thin in the locker room, particularly among some key "face of the 49ers" type players. while the team is winning, that's not a problem. but a few losses
here on "mad money." i'm jim cramer and i'll see you tomorrow. edition beginning right now. >> good evening, i'm larry kudlow. this is the "kudlow report." we're live at p.m. eastern and 4:00 p.m. pacific. it was the best day of the year for the dow. markets in rally mode as ukraine tensions seemed to ease. bob joins us live with much more. >> this was a classic relief rally with historic highs in the s&p 500 but more than that, the highs in the mid cap and the small cap, the russell 2,000. this was a broad rally. we had roughly six to one declining. nine out of ten sectors in the s&p 500 were up. that's very unusual. health care was up as much as cyclical groups. a lot of traders assume the tension and the ukraine thing would go on a lot longer than this. it's not over obviously but there's a sense there's been a deescalation. the volatility dropped because of that. it shot from 14 to 16 yesterday and back to 14 today because even though it's unclear what the scope of the russian military action might be, an outright invasion of the whole country with tanks for example rolling into
by the 1997 base agreement, and de-escalate rather than expand their invasion. >> nbc's jim maceda is in moscow. jim, putin said in his speech yesterday that he didn't have troops in the crimea. he also acknowledge the idea, perhaps, of a further dialogue. so what is the situation here? and do you believe in a diplomatic solution given what putin was saying yesterday? >> good morning, julia. what a difference a day makes. based on putin's comments, many would say that they're taking them with a grain of salt. but he did say tuesday that he saw no need for the use of force in ukraine, he had no desire to an ex the crimean peninsula. that has allowed in people's perception for a stepping back from the brink. this cold war style military confrontation seems to be yesterday's news. and even though crimea remains tense today on the ground, there have been more exchanges of fire, there's been an approach by the russians to take over a ukrainian post again. still, even though these forces are locked in a standoff, it now appears as if ukraine is spinning not towards war, but some kind of
back then and standing outside the hospital for days and the fight that jim has made for his life. and we see all of the victims, newtown and no matter how many victims there are of gun violence, there's such political resistance to closing loopholes. >> the encouraging thing that the american public is behind us. it's about closing that extraordinary disconnect that exists between what the american public wants and what the elected leaders are doing about it. we take tremendous inspiration from what sara and our predecessors at the brady campaign accomplished. this brady law has been tremendously effective. we've prevented 2.1 million prohibited purchasers from purchasing guns. that's 48 domestic abusers every day that have been prohibited. it's a question of building on that success and looking at what it takes to accomplish that success. it doesn't happen overnight and we can take inspiration from the fight that sara led around the original brady law there. >> i was covering congress at the time, i remember. >> we have to stay the course and it's about making the voice heard an
, today trayvon's parents were there in the audience. let's talk about this with gloria borger and jim acosta. there was a compelling story that i wrote about president obama at a father 's day meetin with a bunch of fatherless men who came to the oval office. he had been working with them. the program is called b.a.m., becoming a man. they all signed a father's day card for him and handed it to him. they said they never signed a father's day card because they don't have fathers. president obama said he had never signed a father's day card either. that really is the root of a lot of the problems here. >> it is. and i think this is kind of the most emotional, raw, real president obama that you'll ever see. i mean, this is -- this is someone who clearly identifies with these young men who don't have a father, who feel kind of left out there alone and he had a very clear message to them, which is, no excuses, set goals, work hard. this is a president who once compared himself to trayvon, you know. >> he said, if i had a son -- >> sorry. if i had a son, he would look like trayvon. he said,
heels for a little while until the story clarifies. let's bring in our ace team. michael farr, jim iuorio and zachary karabell. gentlemen, let me go to mr. iuorio because i kind of liked what warren buffett had to say. buy farmland, by stock, by hard assets, don't buy money, i don't really think this is going to be world war ii and you don't think you do either. but in general terms, is buffett right? >> i agree, too. when he said it also he did definitely say that in times of war, which you and i both agree we're not there -- but i have been doing that over the last year and a half. diversifying into things like that. i believe that's a smart way to go. >> michael farr, do you believe it's a smart way to go? what i'm suggesting, i hope it's in line with mr. buffett. but i'm saying fundamentally this economy -- you saw it today. we had a good ism in manufacturing, maybe nobody paid attention to it because of the ukraine. we also had a pretty good personal spending and income number. nobody paid attention to that. the economy is growing at 2.5%. labor profits are so low, i don't thi
on the budget with jim nestle and jared bernstein. great to see both of you. and look, jim, john just made this point that whether it was the proposal from congressman camp or president obama's budget, everyone is saying it's dead on arrival, you don't need to worry about it. frankly, it does feel as though we're seeing an emerging template for tax reform. in your view what could come out of this in the year or two ahead? >> you're right. if you're looking for a silver lining on a day when generally speaking you've seen the president propose what is a budget that's really not going anywhere, the silver lining is what's happening on tax reform, and it's really going to happen in the congress. the president has pretty much checked himself out of the reform process. i think the new finance chairman in the senate, senator widen, and dave camp as well as the potential of paul ryan coming to the tax committee, i think that gives us a silver lining and some hope when it comes to comprehensive tax reform. and the second item is what secretary hagel did in defense spending looking forward and sayin
between president obama and president putin on saturday. it was reportedly 90 minutes. jim acosta literally just walked out of a white house briefing. jim, what more have you found out ant that crucial call, which i think is fair to say went a pretty long time? >> reporter: it did, erin. it's not often we get a lot of details about a 90-minute phone call between the president and any leader of any country. we talked with some senior administration officials here at the white house about the situation in ukraine, and about that 90-minute phone call. according to the senior administration official, the president spent much of that time, and this goes to perhaps the whole reason why this crisis is unfolding, the president spent most of the time basically challenging putin on his facts that vladimir putin was basically saying that he's stepping in or that russia has a right to defend the interests of ethnic russians in ukraine. and that the president spent much of that the phone call basically disagreeing with vladimir putin. so i think that that goes to what we've been hearing over t
with his russian counterpart. nbc's jim maceda will join us in a couple of minutes. >>> investors getting a fresh snapshot of the labor market. adp will release its february report on private sector employment at 8:15 eastern time. economists think the u.s. economy added 160,000 new private sector jobs last month. that is the number to pay attention to. also out today, we're going to be getting the institute for supply management's nonmanufacturing index as well as the fed's beige book. a little bit of news for those of you still play on yahoo!. yahoo! wants users to have their own yahoo! logins in order to access its services. it says it's going to stop letting users access those services like flickr and fantasy sports by using their facebook or google logins. yahoo! says they'll phase in the changes gradually. that's how i get into a lot of the stuff, using my facebook or google password. now i have to get a third. >> i don't have any facebook. i'm not in any of these things. do you have the same password for all of these? >> i used to but i changed them before i got hacked. >> what is

, has ordered his government to consider a request for humanitarian aid. nbc's jim maceda is in russia. the parliament yesterday promised a referendum on the country's future. what more is needed, do you think, to stabilize this situation? >> well, that's really going to be up to vladimir putin. he and russia are calling the shots with the pro russian faction inside ukraine. it's fine for the pro russian faction to want to have a referendum, but if russia isn't ready to accept these people and to accept a splitting apart of ukraine, which it says it hasn't been ready to do and won't accept, then that situation will simply two forward as long as putin wants it to. and in terms of the actual flash points, the tension is -- we haven't seen it this bad since this crisis began in krimiea. it wasn't just one, turns out it was two more airports hit today. there was a siege by these russian speaking military types, although russia denies any involvement at all of its military. and it looked like a repeat of yesterday's incident where similarly armed adults seized government buildings. today it
morning welcome to "squawk on the street" i'm carl quintanilla with jim cramer and david faber at the new york stock exchange. take a look at futures on a very big day for retail. we've already got at least half a dozen earnings out including target. we're going to walk you through all of it. bonds may react to new home sales when those hit the tape in about an hour, in the meantime, here's a look at the ten-year yield, europe is struggling and asia the yuan continues its losing street. and taferinget beating the street despite the impact from the massive customer data breach which shaved two cents per share of earnings and cut into sales. >>> andics inned quarterly results from a slew of other retailers that includes lowe's, dollar tree, tjx and abercrombie & fitch and barnes & noble. >>> and dream works animation down sharply in the premarket after posting fourth quarter results that were below expectations but we'll begin with target, reporting better-than-expected fourth quarter results but saying the massive data breach shaved two cents a share off of earnings and comps down 2.5 in t
that the president and we've heard these comments from secretary hagel, jim. what seems to be the tone where you are. >> tamron, first of all, turning quickly to kiev, what a first day on the job to arseni -- he's the former economy and foreign minister, very well known to both the u.s. and russia. he was officially voted today as the interim prime minister, and his was a full plate. those russian-speaking commandos that you mentioned carry ak-47s and sniper rifles who stormed the crimean building, they're holed up inside. police have cordened off the area. crimea very important, because it is the home to the russian black sea fleet. to worsen matters there, now pro-russian lawmakers in crimea are calling for a referendum for separating from the ukraine. meanwhile, in an offense show of force, though, the kremlin here in moscow denies any connection to the events unfolding in you another crane form the surprise war games are in the second day. you mentioned 150,000 troops, add to that some 900 tanks and some 200 aircraft and warships, and it's all focused on the russian border with ukraine, keeping
approved that use of force. on the phone, we have chief national security correspondent jim sciutto. jim, what is this very quick vote signal to you? >> reporter: i think it's the russians slow rolling an invasion of sovereign ukrainian territory, and in direct defiance of repeated public and stern warnings from u.s. officials ranging from secretary kerry, secretary hagel right up to the top, right up to the president. you saw his comments yesterday. it is a sobering development. the fact is, u.s. officials were already telling us yesterday that those masked troops on the ground as of yesterday in and around crimea were russian so now you have a public in effect acknowledgment from the russian government that the president wants to send troops in there, this authorization. i think the other point is that you can see this as an intelligence failure by the u.s. officials had been telling us in the last 48, 72 hours that it was their assessment that the russians would not go in, and here you have it happening. it is not the way they did it in georgia in 2008. you remember when russia sent t
right, ian williams, thank you for that report. >>> let's turn now to russia where nbc's jim maceda joins us from moscow. what's the latest from there, jim, particularly in the wake of the news conference that putin held yesterday? >> reporter: hi, kristen. well, from the -- certainly from this perch here, it does feel like a flurry of diplomacy in the past 24 hours. the chances of avoiding war in the ukraine seems to be getting a boost, particularly from putin's comments yesterday, tuesday, that he saw no need to use force in ukraine and had no desire to annex the crimean peninsula. those two comments really allowed the military confrontation that we've been reporting on to take a step b k back. and even though, as ian reports, crimea remains tense on the ground today with a new report that russians had seized two ukrainian anti-missile posts, the perception still is that ukraine is spinning now not towards war, but towards some kind of diplomatic solution. secretary of state john kerry's meeting with sergey lavrov, for instance, starting in paris in less than an hour, is their fi
lingering fears they will not stop there. jim maceda joins us live from moscow with more on the diplomatic efforts under way. jim, what's the latest? >> reporter: hi, there, tamron, well, that meeting you referred to was indeed brief, kerry did urge lavrov to have direct talks. that seems to be an important theme now, unifying this swirl of activity. it was their first face-to-face since the ukraine crisis escalated. that is just one example of this, again, this flurry happening over the past 24 hours, tamron, the chances of avoiding war in ukraine seem to have gotten a boost from vladimir putin's comments. yesterday if you recall, he said he saw no need for the use of force in ukraine, had no desire to annex the crimean peninsula, and really that's a sigh of relief has been resinating in the international financial markets, including here in russia in moscow after historic drops on monday. that's just one example. the perception today, tamron, is that ukraine is spinning now not towards war, but some kind of diplomatic solution. in addition to kerry/lavrov meetings, more importantly, you'
. >> i think putin is playing chess and we're playing ma ing . >> jim miller say pulitzer prize winning author and fox news contributor. lindsey graham says nobody takes president obama seriously he says, because he has made, you know, threats before. and hasn't followed through. is that true? >> well, he's extremely good at assessing weakness in someone who is opposing. and i think he figured out a long time ago that there wasn't going to be any really serious consequence. >> so president obama is a guy who has lost credibility. >> that's absolutely clear. what we shouldn't do, gregg is draw a red line that he has no willingness or ability to enforce. >> ukraine's government is asking the united states and europe. removing russia from the g-8 or g-20 going to do any good? can it be done? >> i'm not sure that's necessary because we're not certain what game putin is playing at the moment. we know that he wants his navy base back. he wants it to be enhanced. the. >> the black sea. his entire naval fleet is there in crimea at the black sea. >> we're talking in crimea, 2 million people. but
is going to lose, the russian people are going to lose. >> jim maceda joins us from moscow. a "new york times" article quotes angela merkel having had a telephone conversation with vladimir putin saying she's not sure he is in touch with reality and he is in another world. what does this mean for an escalation of the situation here, do you think? >> what it means is we don't know what will happen next because we can't really anticipate what putin will do. putin is a product of the cold war. for him, no matter how you try to convince him otherwise, anything west of ukraine is enemy territory for him. and he in his own mind is seeing nato creeping up ever so closer -- or closely to his boarders. now, you mentioned secretary kerry going to kiev. that hopefully will calm the waters a little bit, at least keep kiev from doing something unintentionally or that unintentionally as ka lates the situation. but it is now true that the west has mobilized at least diplomatically against vladimir putin's military takeover of crimea. as you say, it's not firmly in his hands. that it's really, julia, u
's political and economic crisis? cnn chief national security correspondent jim sciutto explains. >> reporter: there's a lot of questions about russia's interest in the ukraine as well as the west. first a reminder here. ukraine is in europe not a million miles away, the capital few municipal-bond miles away that americans travel to all the time, paris, london, rome. western border key u.s. aslice, slovakia, hungary and romania, poland. ukraine not a member of nato but there's been talk about bringing them in. let's get a better sense of russia's interest there. you look at crimea. on the tip of that peninsula, the sevastopol military headquarters. access to the black sea, mediterranean, atlantic, essential for russia and first place that many of those 6,000 and even more russian troops went when they crossed the border from russia into crimea. sovereign ukrainian territory. let's look inside the country as well because there's a split. western part of the country here liens towards europe, 5% of the population in these parts speak ethnic russian. eastern part 75% here speak russian, ethnic f

have pro-russian forces who have been put into place. >> jim, obviously the fact that president obama himself spoke out about this underscores the concern within the white house right now. congressman mike rogers saying russian forces control crimea. what's the latest from your sources? >> reporter: the u.s. believes these are russian troops. whether they have the markings on their uniforms or not. and i think in light of our intelligence capabilities you can be pretty confident they know the scale of the number of troops and so on on the ground there. remember, you're looking at those videos in fact of helicopters coming in. that's a russian airplane. that's a russian helicopter that the russians used coming across into ukranian territory. the question what are the russians' intentions? they've taken over the airports, sent more troops to their sea ports there, appear to be forces around a pro-russian television station. are there intentions to protect some russian interests in crimea or do they have greater intentions to take control as representative mike rogers said at the crimean
that didn't exist. >> there were accusations this was going to bring back jim crowe. i looked through the jim crowe laws of the deep south where i grew up. i couldn't find anything common to that at all in this bill. it was very minor language changes. can you help our audience understand exactly what did this bill do? >> senate bill 1062 clarified an updated arizona religious freedom restoration act as we saw courts around the country basically saying that the government wasn't a party to the lawsuit, then the religious freedom restoration act would not apply. that was the main clarification. an individual or a business could assert their religious freedom rights, whether or not the government was a party to the lawsuit so it would be intended to help the little sisters of the poor, the photographer, the wedding cake maker, hobby lobby, those businesses where the government is trying to force them to forego their religious beliefs. >> it was not discriminatory but for example if i owned a jewish dell ka teten and someone said i want you to do bacon wrapped shrimp, then i would be pro

the deadline back two more years. well past the 2016 presidential election. tonight, jim engle tells us how the idea of controlling costs is also on life support. >> the obama administration while saying it's trying to lower health costs sometimes favors the most expensive way to provide care. take cancer treatment, for instance, where it pays hospitals far more for identical treatments than it does a multitude of community cancer centers. >> they do get paid more for doing the exact same thing, so the exact same treatments here versus the hospital are about 40% more expensive in the hospital than they are here. that affects everybody, patients' copays, the insurance carriers as well. >> not only to the taxpayers and medicare pay more when the carrikers in a hospital outpatient setting, but the patient pays more, too, and all the data suggests they pay 10% to 20% more. >> and he said the hospital gets paid twice as much for chemotherapy. for patients, it's price for convenience. >> i can come here and get my chemo within five minutes. i go to the hospital, it could be five minutes, it could
-800-345-2550 of your trading. >>> situation in ukraine and russia tense, jim maceda is live in moscow with the latest. hi, jim. >> reporter: the big event today was putin's command performance, hour and a half press conference that he gave here in moscow, putin called the military intervention in crimea extraordinary but legitimate. i think his key comment came when he asked about what happens next. he said he didn't think the use of force was necessary at this time in crimea or elsewhere in ukraine leaving open the possibility of force but only as a last resort. now, that signal i think coupled with images of russian forces returning to their bases after putin announced the end of the war games along ukraine's border with russia, the two signals, carl, could really lower the temperature in the standoff that, of course, has become increasingly tense. meanwhile as the u.s. and its allies struggle to come up with an effective package of sanctions, putin addressed the sanctions issue as well warning the west and i must say in a calm and unthreatening tone in today's interconnected world sanctions can eq

to bring jim crow law back to the forefront for homosexuals. >> mitt romney has come out against the bill. which means the 2008 presidential nominee came out against it. it's admirable. but here is what's strange about this whole episode, particularly on this night when jan brewer has vetoed it, we're seeing the republican establishment running away from a bill that would allow private citizens to discriminate against gay people and then defend that by evoking their religious faith. private photographers or bakers should be allowed to withhold their services from gay couples getting married. what conceivable logic is that legislation outrageous and acceptable and yet is totally fine for the state itself to discriminate against gay people by not recognizing their marriages in the first place. think about this. both senators are on the record opposing marriage equality. >> i believe marriage should be between a man and a woman. i still hold to the traditional definition of marriage. >> i have changed my position on other issues in my life, but on this one i have not contemplated changing my

congressman jim colby. he came out in 1996 to become the second openly gay republican to serve in congress. of course, he represented part of the state of arizona. congressman, good morning to you, sir. >> good morning, chuck. >> i just want to get your initial reaction to governor brewer's decision. >> well, it was the right decision. i'm certainly pleased that she did it. i felt all along that when she weighed all the issues that she would do exactly what she did. she's right. it's not necessary. it doesn't -- it harms the reputation of the state of arizona, and it would be economically very damaging to the state. it's not the right thing to do. >> explain to some viewers here about the arizona -- the state of the arizona republican party these days. i'm reminded, folks, a few months ago, i believe the state party actually voted to censure john mccain. there seems to be a real divide sort of where national republicans and even republicans that represent arizona here in washington view things on social issues and what happens inside the state. explain that divide. >> well, there is some,
being assured that the democratic super pac priorities usa would stay neutral, jim messina made it clear they were getting on the hillary clinton bandwagon. -- the lack of discipline or the fact that being vice president is, in a sense, a recipe for being rodney dangerfield. it's that the democratic party is unlikely perhaps to nominate or to rally around a white male presidential candidate, perhaps for quite sometime. so let's talk a little bit more about this clinton-biden issue. joining me is msnbc contributor and former white house press secretary for president obama, robert gibbs, and tracey sefle who serves as an advisor to ready for hillary. i'm not saying you're being put on the side of biden here, but what was your -- what do you make of where biden's standing is? i thought that anonymous quote said it all, right? here's a guy who's gotten as close to the brass ring as he's ever gotten before, and then suddenly, the representing apparently has disappeared. >> right. and i thought it was a remarkably well-written piece by glenn. glenn is not used to me saying something like that.
by cutting programs and attacking poor families won't help. joining me now are congressman jim mcdermott, democrat of washington, and salon.com's joan walsh. thank you both for being here. >> thanks, rev. >> it's good to be here. >> congressman mcdermott, this gop report blames poverty on the safety net, and on family structure. give me your take on this. >> well, as usual, paul ryan's running in the wrong direction. the american people know that it's what you're paid when you work that makes you get out of poverty. and as long as we don't raise the minimum wage, we're not going to get people out of poverty. a little town in washington, seatac, voted by public vote to raise to it $15. all over the country, suddenly there is an explosion of people recognizing that people who are paid well are not in poverty. we haven't raised the minimum wage. you can work as hard as you want at a minimum wage job and you're still in poverty. so you have to do something about the minimum wage. that's why the president's going forward with this. and unless paul ryan figures out which way the country
